The True Morale Builder

In "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker Eddy we read (p. 85), "Temptation, that mist of mortal mind which seems to be matter and the environment of mortals, suggests pleasure and pain in matter; and, so long as this temptation lasts, the warfare is not ended and the mortal is not regenerated." Only when the so-called pleasures are of such a nature as to dim out good from conscious thinking do they decrease the activities of virtue and increase the likelihood of wrong tendencies. Eventually, if unopposed, they black out that which should be foremost, the radiant consciousness of purity and Life.

Intoxicating liquor is an unquestionable evil. Indulgence in liquor develops an increasing dependence upon material sense for morale and upon unwholesomeness for satisfaction.
